2017 CoSIDA Academic All-District Softball Teams

St. Ambrose senior first baseman Anna Boffeli and sophomore third baseman Morgan Krieger were named to the 2017 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Softball Team. It marks the third straight year Boffeli has been named to the prestigious team.

The honor recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Nominees must be starters or important reserves, sophomores or older, with at least 3.30 cumulative grade point averages.

Boffeli and Krieger, two of the six infielders on the team, represent the District 3 College Division, which includes NAIA and two-year colleges from Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. They now advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.

Boffeli, from Eldridge, Iowa, was recently named to the all-tournament team after batting .556 (5-for-9) with two RBIs and two runs scored over four games at the CCAC Softball Tournament. She batted .364 for the year with 12 doubles, three triples and one home run. Boffeli leaves as one of the most prolific offensive players in school history. Her 50 career doubles are most in program history. She is second in all-time hits (211) and runs scored (129), third in RBIs (119) and 12th in batting average (.358).

She is majoring in Nursing at St. Ambrose.

Krieger, from Plainfield, Ill., was a first team all-conference third baseman for the second straight year for the Bees this season. She batted .360 with a team-leading 14 doubles and eight home runs. Her 14 doubles are the fifth most in a single season by any Bee and she moved up to seventh on the school's all-time list with 16 career homers. Krieger also led the team with 42 RBIs, the eight-best single-season mark in program history, and a .627 slugging percentage.

She is majoring in Psychology at St. Ambrose.

SAU finished 33-18 overall and 14-10 in the CCAC this season.
